Monero Talk interviews Giacomo Zucco and Sethforprivacy

Douglas Tuman1 interviews Bitcoin supporter Giacomo Zucco2 and Sethforprivacy3 in the latest Monero Talk episode45 focused on thorough critiques of Monero:

[..] I don’t think fungibility is something you can achieve by enforcing in protocol level - they will just ban, blacklist the entire protocol, forcing you to use some central bank currency instead .. (Giacomo @ 33:28)

[..] you can enforce fungibility at the protocol level and Monero does that and it is fungible at the protocol level. Just because someone says all of this [..] is something you can’t use, that doesn’t make it non-fungible [..] they are just deciding that that fungible asset can’t be used .. (Sethforprivacy @ 42:37)

Several topics are covered in this interview, including: Monero and BTC scalability problems, obfuscation vs omission and fungibility issues.
